I agree with you there. The only reason I ride the brook is because I don't have to drive there.

We rode the whole damn thing! I am so disapointed!

There were a few good sections but not worth the drive. I feel like I can get just as much fun at Hunters Creek with half the drive and no stupid 24" wide trees.

The only thing I found to be consistent with the description was the trees being so tight you can’t pass through them, what dumb idea. The few times we were feeling like the trail had some decent speed and flow we encountered trees that brought us to a dead stop!

I’m glad that some of you enjoy the place but it is not my cup of tea and I was greatly disappointed after reading so many rave reviews.

I'm really surprised to hear you say that. Were you at the right trail? LOL

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
